Fashionable Fun and Friends

by Lauren on February 28, 2011

This past weekend was filled with great friends, fashion and fun at my sorority’s formal date party. It was so nice to catch up with friends and dance the night away at a cute cabin in the woods. I must admit though, that my friends have style!

Sophia and I getting ready to pick up our boys for the date party.

All of us girls getting ready.

Escape to Nature

by Lauren on February 27, 2011

I came across some pictures I took last summer and am completely enthralled by nature’s beauty in these pictures. Although there is more than enough snow on the ground right now, these pictures remind me that spring is just around the corner and that it will soon be warm enough to enjoy the outdoor beauty.

Take a glimpse at these pictures and let them fill you with warmth.

This old broken fence made a unique picture.

I love the cottage in the distance. It looks like it is filled with happy memories.

Look at all the luscious green. The vibrant color makes my mouth water.

How cute are these old fashioned mailboxes? I love the yellow tulips surrounding it.

Photography is a great hobby to relax your mind and feed your soul. The perfect photograph could be right in front of you, you just have to view the normal around you in a new light.

Have a good start to your week and dont forget to enjoy the beauty around you, even if their is snow on the ground.

Love, lo


Latest obsession

by Lauren on February 26, 2011

With all the busyness right now I need a little something extra to keep me going. I’ll admit I have a coffee addiction and am very picky when it comes to the perfect cup of joe. When I went to a friends house a couple weekends ago, I was introduced to Starbucks VIA Ready Brew.

Get this, it’s instant coffee!! and it’s actually good. When I usually think of instant coffee, it makes me queazy but this is good stuff!

Try it and let me know what you think.

Love, Lo


Wonderful wedges

by Lauren on February 24, 2011

Whew! What a busy few day. I have been working on a public relations campaign for Buffalo Wild Wings and we had our first event last night. We were so excited to see the turnout and felt like it went great.

Its so nice to sit down to my computer and just blog, it truly is a great escape.

Im fairly short so Im always looking for comfortable heels to wear. Wedges seriously are the best way to add some height and be comfortable. Look at the cute ones I found around the web.




Where would you wear these fab shoes?

Love, Lo


Active. Girl.

by Lauren on February 22, 2011

Good news, the ground hog did not see his shadow so Spring is almost here! This means time to get in shape and spend more time outdoors. I love going on runs, walks with friends or exploring a new park when the weather is nice.

A new store recently went up near where I live, called Lucy’s. Its so nice to see a store that makes workout clothes cute and fashionable. Here are three of my favorite looks for three different activities.


This top seriously looks so comfortable

Run. Walk.

Instead of wearing a sweatshirt to run or walk in, wear a long sleeve like this to cut the bulk but still stay warm.

Explore. Travel.

I love how this jacket is chic yet it keeps the sporty look by being water proof and durable.

Take the time to indulge yourself with physical activity whether it be Yoga. Running. Walking. Exploring. Traveling.

Love, Lo

Out of the many things I loved on my visit to NY this past summer, the MOMA (museum of modern art) was at the top of the list. I was so inspired by the many different types of artwork. Each piece of art had its own story.

My favorite photographer there was Garry Winogrand. His photographs are stunning. My favorites are from his collection, “Women are beautiful.”

The MOMA really is a wonderful experience if your ever in NY. If you go be prepared to be inspired.

Love, Lo

Bahama mama

by Lauren on February 17, 2011

I cannot believe how amazing todays weather is! Its around 70 degrees. This has to be a record for Kansas weather in February. I truly enjoyed it with one of my classes cancelled and laying out on the sun deck with my two best friends.

The nice weather reminds me of my trip to the Bahamas in exactly a month. Yikes, better get ready to wear a swimsuit. But look at these lovely pictures I found of the Bahamas.

A hammock in the bahamas is pure bliss!

I think one of the days were going to go snorkeling.

This looks like heaven.

Have you been to the Bahamas? If so, I would love to hear some tips and cool places to go.

Love, Lo


On the Red Carpet at the Grammys

by Lauren on February 15, 2011

Did you watch the Grammys a couple nights ago? There were some interesting outfits like Lady Gagas and some exotic ones like Carrie Underwoods but overall the outfits hit the mark.

A few of my favorites.

I would consider this the perfect LBD.

This dress might be my favorite from the whole night.

Its a different pattern but with the cut of the dress it works.

Always classy.

What do you think of the outfits? Do you agree that these were the best dressed?

Love, Lo

I am enjoying the weather and watching a basketball game tonight with friends. Happy Valentines Day!

Style crush: Rachel Zoe

by Lauren on February 14, 2011

I love Rachel Zoe’s style. She always looks so put together and never fails to put together a classic look.

Just a few of my favorites.

I love the color of this dress. Perfect for spring.

Think of how many extravagant outfits are in that closet?

What do you think of her style? Also checkout her show, Rachel Zoe Project.

Love, Lo
